Health Education: 140 Characters or Less

Samantha RebaJunior Writer

It’s the 21st century, and we’ve come a long way. Today’s medical advancements blow away those of the generations before our time, and the Internet is no longer connected to a phone line. The world is changing, and along with these changes comes the use of social media; most importantly, Twitter.

Twitter was first introduced to the world in 2006. Seven years later, it’s more prominent than ever, especially in the field of health education.

Social media users are interested in up-to-date news, facts, and information. With advancements in technology, medicine, and the Internet, it’s astonishing how much information can be conveyed to an audience in a given amount of characters.

Twitter offers a constant flow of information on health education. This includes breaking news, trends, facts and statistics, and overall impact of the pharmaceutical industry. Twitter brings people together. Support groups bring together breast cancer survivors and create groups and friends that can offer firsthand experience and support.  Healthy food facts and exercise tweets are a great way to keep followers on a healthy lifestyle track. In a virtual world, it’s easy to gain support from users who are constantly looking to be informed.

To gain even more of a following, hashtags allow users to search a term to see who is talking about it. Whether a user is interested in HPV or Health Literacy Month, they can search the term to see what health education agencies are saying on the subject.

Artcraft Health Education can help! With our newest addition to the social media platform, Artcraft Health Education has brought timely and relevant views, facts, and insights on health education to Twitter.
